The Italian motorcycle manufacturer Ducati has just launched one of the worlds most powerful naked production motorcycle in India, the Streetfighter V4. If you are not aware, streetfighter is a powerful naked motorcycle that shares many things from the Panigale V4. And in the motorcycle community knows Panigale V4 is super close to a MotoGP motorcycle.
The motorcycle in India comes with a price tag of ₹19.99 Lakhs for the base variant. Whereas the more expensive Streetfighter V4 S is priced at ₹22.99 Lakhs (Both ex-showroom).
What Powers the Ducati Streetfighter V4?
Under the fuel tank, the Ducati Streetfighter sports the same engine as the Panigale V4.
- This motor is a 1,103cc 4 cylinder engine that delivers peak power of 205hp at 12,750rpm. On the other hand, the maximum torque output sits at 123Nm at 11,500rpm.
- The power from the engine goes to the rear wheel via a 6-speed gearbox that comes standard with features like slip and assist clutch, quick shifter and more.
What does this motorcycle feature?
To being with, both the variants share the same engine. Meaning, both have the exact same mechanical specifications. Then what’s the difference, you may ask? The difference is in the other specs of the motorcycle.
- The lower variant of the motorcycle gets Showa BPF forks in the front. At the rear, the Streetfighter boasts of Sachs mono-shock and steering damper
- On the contrary, the Streetfighter S sports Ohlins NIX30 forks in the front which are also electronically adjustable.
- Talking about the rear, Ohlins TTX36 rear mono-shock is what that does duties. Also, the steering damper is from Ohlins.
- Other standard features include all-LED headlights, a fully digital instrument cluster. One thing that seems a little out of place are the aerodynamic winglets. Thought they will aid in producing a little bit of downforce. But without the full fairing, they will not be as effective.
The motorcycle is available in two colours, traditional Ducati red and dark stealth. The former one being a little pricy. ₹23.19Lakhs (ex-showroom) to be precise. As of now, there are no direct rivals of this motorcycle except the Triumph Speed Tripple 1200 RS. That too is a little low on power when compared to this Italian.
